Category: Lisp Core  Integration Group: None Status: Open Resolution: None Priority: 5 Private: No Submitted By: Sanjoy Mahajan (sm324) Assigned to: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Summary: asked about sign of yx in integral containing only z Initial Comment: Entering integrate(exp(sqrt(z^3)),z,0,1); produces Is yx positive or negative? But there is no yx in the integrand. I thought maxima might have an implicit rule about z = x + iy, so I tried the integral using q as the variable instead of z, but the same question was asked.

Comment By: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Date: 20071212 07:43 Message: Logged In: NO This is likely the same problem, but I am not completely sure, so I decided to add this as a comment here rather than open a new bug report. Entering: limit(x*(1  x*log(1 + 1/x)),x,0); produces Is x + 1 positive or negative? There are two things wrong with this 1) When x > 0 then x+1 is clearly always positive. Presumably the intended question was "Is x positive or negative?" 2) The value of the limit does not depend on the sign of x, it is 0 in either case.

The further examples don't problems too: (%i1) integrate(exp(sqrt(x)),x,1,5); (%o1) 2*(sqrt(5)1)*%e^sqrt(5) (%i3) limit(x*(1x*log(11/x)),x,0); (%o3) 0 Closing this bug report as fixed.
